I can remember when Mauser K98Ks were going for less than $150 and Mosins were $75 or so, at that point if you wanted a surplus rifle you bought the Mauser. Now Mausers are going for quite a bit more but the Mosins are still reasonably price so for a first surplus rifle I think it's just about perfect. I like my Mosin, it shoots pretty well and isn't a bad looking rifle (at least it's not made with plastic). My next surplus rifle will be a Garand and then maybe a Mauser but I started with a Mosin because they are cheap and readily available.
